Oklahoma Agriculture in the Classroom


Handprint Lamb

Each student needs:

  • construction paper
  • popcorn


  1. Trace your hand on the construction paper and cut it out.
  2. Draw a sheep face on the thumb.
  3. Draw hooves on the tips of the fingers.
  4. Estimate how many kernels of popcorn it will take to cover the main part of the hand (the “lamb body”).
  5. Count the popcorn kernels to find a nonstandard measure of the area of the “lamb bodies.”
  6. Glue popcorn to cover the “lamb body” to look like wool.
